Happy Thanksgiving from The Handle Bar!
Almost exactly 2 years ago I began to envision what my own cycling studio would look and feel like. 18 months later, on June 15th of this year, I opened the doors to The Handle Bar in the burgeoning West Broadway neighborhood of South Boston. Over the last 6 months I’ve watched my dream become a reality, and could not be more thankful. I came up with the idea and put bikes in the room… but it is the people that make The Handle Bar what it is.
This Thanksgiving, I am thankful for my incredible team and the community of riders who create the vibrance and energy that now define The Handle Bar. Your positivity and light make this studio a very, very special place to be.
The entire HB team have thrown themselves into this small business and given it personality. The desk staff .. you show up with smiles no matter the time of day (ahem 5:30am ladies I know who you are). Countless hours of sweeping, spraying shoes, & cleaning bikes, and you continue to greet each rider as if they’re the first. The instructors.. you work your booties off to make each ride more special than the last. Late nights of ‘playlisting’ and planning make the classes the best in town…sweaty, spirited, inspiring and fun. Thank you to the entire HB team!
The riders.. you have amazed me since our grand opening weekend! Your motivation and commitment inspire me to get on the bike every day! You’ve lost weight, you’ve beat stress, you’ve made friends, you leave the bike room happier than when you walked in. This is some of the most gratifying stuff I could have imagined in starting the HB. I love getting to know you. Keep up the good work:)
So this thanksgiving I have a lot to be thankful for. It’s you!
You’ve certainly earned this feast..so enjoy it! You know you’ll be back next week to sweat, inspire, transform, and raise the BAR!
Happy Thanksgiving and thank you so much!
